Pendaflex Tag Tamer is a free Facebook application that allows users to find and untag themselves in photos that they’ve been tagged in. Facebook members can use Pendaflex Tag Tamer to filter through tagged photos by month, year or the name of the person who they were tagged with. If you or your older teen was on Facebook before they offered a way to approve photo tags, then this tool is a great way to find and remove those unwanted, unasked for tagged photos.
The application is very easy to use. Simply log into Facebook and search for “Pendaflex Tag Tamer”. Open the application and click Start Taming, as seen in the screenshot below.
From there, you can conduct a general search of your tags. Clicking on one of the search results triggers a pop-up window containing the photo and the ability to untag your name. This function is very similar to Facebook’s current photo editing options, so it should look familiar to anyone who’s used these tools before.
The only issue that we experience during our review was an instance where the application failed to load on Chrome. We ended up using the application in Firefox instead, and it worked just fine. Overall, however, Pendaflex doesn’t really seem necessary because it doesn’t do anything that you can’t already do on your own. Again, you can use it for free, which is always nice, but it’s really a one-time use application if, after your one-time use, you realize how important it is to take advantage of Facebook’s privacy settings.
You can follow this step-by-step, comprehensive guide to learn more about Facebook’s privacy settings, including instructions on how to enable Tag Review, which makes it so that all posts and photos tagged with your name require your explicit approval.
